LESSON OF LOAVES & FISHES:  As soon as we learn to be a community instead of a crowd, we’ll have all the bread we’ll ever need. A crowd is a group of individuals who are interested in the same thing. A community is a people who are in communion with all humanity, who are joined in humanity in such a way that when one laughs, all laugh, when one cries all cry. In a crowd people worry about having enough to eat. In a community no one gives a second thought. - SoundBYTE Spirituality

Tell Him about your heartache,
And tell Him the longings, too.
Tell Him the baffled purpose
When we scarce know what to do.

Then leaving all our weakness
With the One divinely strong,
Forget that we bore a burden
And carry away a song.

 - Phillips Brooks
